This is the insect world version of the ugly duckling. The cute ladybird beetle started life as a fierce centipede look-alike creature.
In the human world, the closest equivalent i ever observed is my nephew. He used to be a naughty and spoilt brat in his younger days but after going through army and NUS, is now a soft spoken gentleman.
So, we are not what we used to be. We change. From bad to good. Or good to bad. We will never know what we will become. Be mindful and aware and hopefully we will not be too far away from the middle path.
in the last gathering with bloggers from KL, i had the privilege of sitting facing Winn and came face to face with the beauty &
the beast her new pet. you can see her concentration in getting her restless pet to pose for the camera…
i could see her admiration for her new love….
her dedication is total & absolute as her facial expression tells us all!
now, may i present to you winn’s new pet!
winn “better stop flying around and eat your food…”
beside this little distraction, lunch was good as i got the chance to meet may & nyonya penang (first time), angel, jilo & kenny ng. my only regret was, the meet was too short for me as i got to leave early.
Thank you angel for organising the lunch!!
You can never estimate the power of pop culture in your life until it stokes the fear in you. My family is going to live through this Friday night in fear because simple American kampung mate, Mr Bush is visiting and asking me out for dinner. I vowed I won’t watch American political movie after this and here is the reason why.
Have you watched the movie, Syriana? We are worried that someone will take out Mr Bush with a copy cat tactical strike from a patriot missile launchs from the stratosphere. What if the missile carry a nuclear warhead? How scary, imagining your life evaporates just like that for the mere fact that you are stuck on a little island with the most powerful man on earth?
Superman, where are you when we need you?
Beside that, half of little dot is cordoned off to provide a security buffer zone for Mr Bush and his entourage. That leaves only the Night Safari, Bird Park and the trans park in Changi Beach in the outskirt accessible to local indigenous like me. Unless you are a great fan of National Geographic, Animal Planet and have a non-mainstream sexual inclination, there is really not many places you can hang out this Friday.
But don’t get me wrong. I hold no grudges against Mr Bush for all this inconvenience. On the contrary, I like this man, for the fact that both Bush and burung pipit have a lot in common. For example, we have simplistic view of the world. I, “don’t forget to feed the dog and the world will be a better place” and Bush, “take out Saddam and we will have world peace”. The only difference is I don’t have to survive election every four year to validate my point of view.
Mr Bush, try our signature dish chilli crab at East Coast, satay at Lau Pa Sat or visit our newly renovated museum at Bras Basah. Whatever it is, have fun and it is a pleasant experience talking to you. But next time when you wanna drop by, please let us know in advance so we can book our long overdue trip to Bali.
By the way, if you happen to drop by Texas en-route to Washington, can you send my regards to my blogdy, SA?
Long time havent use my yahoo messenger liao. I stopped after i married another yahoo-er whom i wooed over the net using Yahoo Messenger. For obvious reason, isn’t it? It is not like i am going to woo another stranger over the net and bed her any time soon.
But the dramatic experience of actually manage to strike up a relationship over the net lingers on… Call me silly, but i actually felt infidel using the YM now. However, I am starting to use the YM again. I don’t know why but maybe the itch is getting to me.
So fast itchy already? It is not like what you think. I am happily hitched now and working on my project-B. I think i just missed the medium and the virtual social circle of my YM.
Do you yahoo? 🙂
